TV Quote of the Day (‘Succession,’ on Rich People in Jail)

[On a Presidential campaign ad he’s paid for, Connor Roy, scion of a filthy-rich family, has just announced that he won’t pay taxes, even if it means going to jail—a prospect that horrifies half-sister Shiv.]

Siobhan (Shiv) Roy [played by Sarah Snook]: “Connor, you know what they do to rich people in jail.”

Connor Roy [played by Alan Ruck, pictured]: “Yes, they let them out early to mitigate the risk of litigation.”— Succession, Season 2, Episode 3, “Hunting,” original air date Aug. 25, 2019, teleplay by Jesse Armstrong and Tony Roche, directed by Andrij Parekh
